cutbacks from the state and that was already surging with governor brown's leadership but again the statistics with ron andcytes invited us to her house and we talked about that with friends. so rendering and i reviewed with the folks the statistics and we've gotten one big one was the improvements of our schools being the number one improvements last year in all of the public schools in california the rainy day fund in our school district was beginning to pay off. what's going on behind that and we discovered the big drop off
12:39 pm
in the middle schools that's where the truancy starts and the resources were very much lacking even though we had as a city the elementary schools and the high schools were getting some great attention and the college track who's here today we've partnered with them and their i they've been there and we're participating there see teachers of america were there and they really wanted to bust you up this effort but we saw the middle schools being the caljic so i asked for the names of all the school principles and i got that and we met with them and had the first real lunch and we
12:40 pm
talked. with that we also were able after the first dinner meeting we had our first donations that susan and ron gave and said before you talk about this large system show us what you can do with one school it was for martin luther king school to give the technology support and some resources so we began already to fliesh in our minds given the statistics of the drop off and the truancy and all the other issues but what trafrd with our meeting i met 12 principles who were passionate about their sites and the families and each of them developed a whole list i have things they kind of wished in
12:41 pm
resources were not a limit what could they do to create a pitcher with the city and private entrepreneurs to change around the equity issues. that agenda was created at it first meeting. i delivered we had 12 enthusiastic principles who were passionate about teaching and wanted to best and were not afraid to step out of the box and suggest to richard and the school board it was not about being taken over by anything it was about a promise that we made a long time ago we would invest in collaboration with everyone to come up with the best ideas were we sat down at that meeting
12:42 pm
with susan and the sales forces folks and began that conversation. i want to say this is just the beginning. we have found great partners in sales forces foundation and certainly mark and lynn have a passion for this city that's been here for 3 jargsdz we see it in all the things they do but in particular we were able to have a conversation that i haven't had ♪ long, long time. the last time i was asked mr. lee what you, you really want to do it was in college a professor asked me he was asking about my life expect sisters but i have not been asked since college and
12:43 pm
mr. benny house file has had occasion to ask me that when the cities has a lot of entities that wanted to be the most successful region and city in the whole world including the teachers and be part of it. that is a question that will be with me for my entire years at the helm of the mayor of the city but i'm happy to refine it. and so today, i'm proud to announce that this partnership with our unified school district emanating y from where i described with mr. benny house file and a number of technology companies nooshl investment of $2.7 million for the middle schools to begin with that will
12:44 pm
fill the gap that was described but it's many, many more than that. if you look at the whole agenda that those principles give me you'll know they want you mean to invest in people and this is the most important thing. i know there's some articles that is a gosh urging tow getting a lot of money it's not about that. it's whether we're ready to receive it in the way that results will multiple 10 to twelvefold. and i will have to say as glad as i am to have met and work with those 12 principles their trouble causeers because they've invited the other 7 principles
12:45 pm
of the k schools to come at me but created the buzz that we wanted to say with every teacher of the unified school district and that's about the excitement of being invested in for our kids. and so we picked the partner with united way to help us handle the money and united way is a wonderful partner. they helped me find the 6 hundred plus jobs with the private entities they work with. so the larger picture is about public and private pifrpz with our city with successful companies like sales force and i think as popular the companies are beginning to exhibit their floifb floifb goals and what
12:46 pm
kind of society do we want to lead. this is a question for every tech company i'm glad to these those companies here today, you'll notice ann display with an a and as you sit here now good with a z. every tech company that has a letter in their name a there z are going to be part of the journey of not only transforming our education system as described as struggling in the past with a lot of different barriers and opening up to our effort to involve a larger picture of what our residents and their families really want to do in the great city of san francisco and how do we attract those families to stay here. i go to technology visits every
12:47 pm
tech tour tuesday and meet with thirty or 40 employees of those companies and many of them know their ipos won't come in like other families they want to be here and work in jobs by the first thing is what are we doing that the schools. that's the birthing sign of viechltd. the best investment is to create a family here because that means you've got fabricate in the way we've treated our schools and the private-public partnering we have. in addition the technology gap that sales force is helping us today with offer $1.7 million in
12:48 pm
the other person ipads and the tinge goes with it is the training of features tea administrators. that's similar to what auto deck zinc gesture offers. it's the support mechanisms. it's one thing to announce the gift bus it's the best thing to be able to receive it with the highest level of care it deserves. this is what we want to do because i know about mr. benny will be part of this for a long time he invests. vichltd is long term until your goal of skews is done. i want to see the kids successful in every school.

12:50 pm
think outside the box kowa you what do you need. i didn't dictate at all to any of the things the principles came up with only to suggest this is your opportunity to really be creative this is not you to do you came to san francisco it's not just a splarn it's about being a part of the san francisco fabric. and mr. benny house file and the work sales company has given us this up to this point. it helps us to think outside the bongs and the final question that benny house file has asked me when we're through dealing with the equity question when
12:51 pm
we've gotten comfortable with technology the question will be which is a it that you want to do with education in san francisco. i'm happy to entertain that question along with a large group of partners through sf city and sales force. we've begun those conversations and we're going to have a lot of outside meetings to demonstrate if resources were not a barrier what do we want our community to establish with the companies. that will make me more excited about all the transcribe lags of shut downstairs and strikes things that would drag a mayor down to the deepest of depression but to signal that we
12:52 pm
have great partners in our business community that demonstrate their love for our city and this is the appropriate way to introduce a good friend the ceo of sales force, of course, that's mr. benny house file >> (clapping) >> well, we're so lucky to have such a great mayor in san francisco. aren't we?

12:55 pm
technology is important but not the end all we all know that. i've been putting schools in the public schools since 1998 we have thousands of folks in san francisco they get 4 hours a month paid off for volunteerism we want them to come and do the work in the schools. we have to remember this is about one thing our children. the most important resource in san francisco. when we think about our children we need to remember our children need a great education which is why we invest our children need great health that's why we're building our benny hospital as well and make sure our children are off the streets and have
